Between Good Friday and Saturday

 

So here we sit, between Good Friday and Easter Sunday! It’s Saturday; A quiet day of just rest! Oh yeah, how quiet is our soul when it’s filled with great remorse and sadness over how we’ve handled the past day! Yeah, remember, it was our imperfections and sin that went along with the crowd! How we’ve mocked, scorned, and ridiculed simply because of our humanity? But today, there’s hope lying in that grave of our guilt and remorse. All that guilt that follows all that stuff that we’ve just done to follow the crowd, to enjoy selfish pleasures, to crucify our Lord! Well, beautiful soul, a grace greater than our sin says “It’s not the end; but only the beginning.”

Thing is, on that third day, the heavy stone was rolled back and our Lord, rose out of that tomb leaving it empty and He walked away from all the pain it stood for and He walked smack dab into the dawn of a brand new day. A new element of heavenly dimension! He entered into a new eternity with a new life, as he entered into a timely, pivotal point in history for the whole world. It was a world changer, a defining moment for humanity, where His victory over death was defeated, and the enemy’s best shot at defeating our Lord, was overturned, overthrown and overruled. The enemy’s best shot to defeat Christ and all He stood for, and all that He came to accomplish was lost! What’s left, when death, the biggest thing ever that could thwart life, meets abundant life here and Eternal life forever: a victory so much greater?

What more can be said on the matter? It’s over! It’s done! It’s finished! Truth didn’t bury! Death didn’t win! The grave is empty! Our guilt is gone! Our Lord has risen! Our Saviour reigns and our salvation is made available. Our forgiveness is free for the asking and our guilt is lifted. Our debt is paid and our hope is eternal!

Wow, just wow! Talk about grace! Talk about mercy! After what we’ve just done, we are now free to go free and free to enter into that pivotal point that went down in history and see it working in our own lives as followers of this victorious Christ. We are free! It’s a life changer and friends, beautiful things are happening behind that impossible, rolled stone today. You are free to go free from your guilt and anxiety, worries, cares and fears! God has this one and His empty grave is our victory!

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”
1 Peter 1:3

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
John 11:25-26

Under A Million Stars

Some days it’s ok to not be perfect. Some times it’s ok to just grab a cup of tea or a second cup of coffee and curl up with a blanket and some happy thoughts and just know you’re in safe keeping under a God that loves you unconditionally under the light of a billion stars and in the glory light of the Cross! Oh yes, and it doesn’t matter your situation, He’s got that too! He knew way before you and He’s loving you through it and carrying you over it. So yeah, beautiful one, some days it’s just fine to be an imperfect soul basking in His grace, knowing His favor and resting in His safe keeping.

You ~ Beautiful And Lovely Even Still

 

Ahh, that unconditional love that God gives is a blessing isn’t it? Aren’t you so thankful for it on the days when you feel you’ve missed the mark and it really doesn’t matter what others think anyway, it’s really about how God sees you! Even though you feel tossed, wrecked and blown about in the winds of chaotic guilt storms ~ God sees you beautiful and lovely. Yes He does! He overlooks the mark we missed and covers us with ~ a miraculous and precious mercy so sweetened with amazing grace and forgiveness yet again! Why are we so reluctant to accept it? It’s always there to meet us and cover us even in our most down of down moments. It’s always there for the worries that took over, the doubts that crept in, the fear filled moments where faith didn’t surface ~ no ~ not even for a second, and where temptation was stronger than our self -discipline.

There are so many subtleties the enemy uses to set us up, catching us in the trap of guilt ~ making us believe the lie that we’re not good enough for any good at all~ especially for any good things that God has to offer. Yet, that’s exactly what God had in mind for His created people with His plan of salvation wrapped in awesome, unconditional love. Christ, The cross, the shed blood, the grave, the resurrection and the victory over death. It’s what He came for and It’s yours! It’s mine! It’s ours for the asking and receiving of it. Look to the cross ~ That scandalous event of Christ’s blood shed was for our salvation for this journey of our “now” life and “Life Everlasting” and it’s there for us, when we miss the marks along the way. Beautiful soul ~ Step into that peace!

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever would believe on Him should not perish but have eternal life.”

1 Corinthians 1:18
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
